Most poisonous reptile [Aquatic]

Last updated: October 12, 2017 at 19:02 pm

All sea snakes (± 50 species) are venomous. The venom of some species is up to 10 times more potent than that of a rattlesnake. They are mostly found in the Indian and western Pacific Ocean. They do not normally seek contact with divers and do not bite unless molested. The two species considered most poisonous are Belcher’s sea snake (Hydrophis belcheri) and the beaked sea snake (Enhydrin schistosa).
